Hollow Realm by Talons (2010)

Kind of Like: Pelican, Boris, Russian Circles 
Genres: Post-Rock, Sludge, Ambient, Progressive

The most recent band to be distributed by Topshelf Records, it appears as though the label has picked another great band to add to their already amazing roster.  The album begins with a song that starts like it's just gonna be another delay pedal fest like most post rock these days.  Then the dual violins kick in and the sludge shows up along with all the aforementioned genres, and the great musicianship of this UK group becomes increasingly apparent.  Many critics are claiming this to be a late contender for album of the year, and I can see why.
